Cannot access Direct menu

Hello,

I am unable to access the direct menu on the LCD/EVF screen. I managed to do that normaly last week - you only press the joystick or the dial wheel and you are in. I have the CAMERA/DIRECT MENU in PART. I tried ALL and OFF but nothing works. I reseted to factory settings. but still no go in the on-screen menu. Of course no FULL AUTO. I hope I am missing something.... Thanks for help

Petr

Mine does that when the memory card is nearly full. Change cards and menu access comes back.

Thank you for the reply. You are correct, I found it myself. I had 0min space on both cards. I deleted them and the direct menu problem was gone. That is strange, isnt it. ??

Thank you again, now I know what caused it.

Whenever the camera needs your attention (usually displaying a message, like about low battery or media, or even confirming the change you have just made to some setting), the Direct Menu becomes inaccessible; this is one of the most silly things that crossed the minds of the designers.
